As you probably know already I am trying to get extra organized for the summer and I was wondering if you want to see something similar to the old posts: What a Mathematician should visit? I used to write these posts mostly 2 summers ago and I also made a short magazine about this: MathTravel. For this post I wanted to remind you about this project and see if you have any ideas for future posts.
What a Mathematician can see in London – was the first post on this topic and I wanted to present some of great sculptures which are related to mathematics and can be found in London. The post doesn’t cover all of them, but I think that a London tour to see all those things would go perfectly with other attractions London has.
What a Mathematician should visit in London – refers to…

Summer and sunny days are finally here, maybe not much in Scotland but still. I thought that this summer I will post more of this type of blog posts. To continue the mini-series (see What a Mathematician should visit – project) I will start with a city from Scotland – Glasgow. Though this is not the city I live in, it is a great place to visit if you are into mathematics like myself.
The first on the list is the Glasgow Science Center due to their great amount of mathematical and logic puzzles. If you want to spend some time enjoying and solving some great puzzles that is the best places. Also, the Center has a lot of technology and science related things which are very interesting. What I like the most about the place is the fact that they use practical things to explain concepts (puzzles, interactive…

Heyyy!!! I am really happy, cause the first thing that happened when I open WordPress was a big notification about my stats are booming!!! And WoooOOooWww! they are… Thank you so very much, I am so excited to see that you like and read some of my posts, thank you very much. So, lets start the actual post…
I just started this Traveling section a while ago, but I did not post anything else. But I have to say that it is the most time consuming of all my posts, because even if I visited a lot of cities I also need to spend a lot of time properly Google almost everything, and I am sure that you know that this is really time consuming. So, last time I did a post about What a Mathematician can SEE in London, and it is mostly about some nice statues. This…

June is just a couple of days away and the holiday season is not an excuse to forget about math. I know that summer is the time when we forget about school, but for me it is also the time to visit a little more and see how cities around the world embrace the beauty of math. So, with this idea in mind, lets see what a math-lover can visit in Stuttgart, Germany:
1. First of all Stuttgart the city and region has a lot of technology and industry related museums, which is great. Thus, you can choose the ones you think are more related to you. If you ask me a technology or industry related museum should never be omitted from your list because mathematics is at the base of evolution. Kärcher Museum in Winnenden takes you in the journey through the development of cleaning technology and the over…

„Surface Projection” and a raffle for the Pi Day
(Spanish) „Surface Projection“ es una nueva app (para Android) que ofrece imágenes curvadas en tiempo real, tomadas directamente de las cámaras frontal y trasera del teléfono móvil. Permite ver nuestra cara moviéndose suavemente sobre superficies topológicas famosas, como la cinta de Moebius, el toro o la botella de Klein.
(English) „Surface Projection“ is a new app (for Android) that offers curved images in real time, taken directly from the front and rear cameras of the mobile phone. It allows us to see our face moving smoothly over famous topological surfaces, like the Moebius ribbon, the bull or the Klein bottle.
This application is being developed by Diego Cangas, based on Antonio…
